The Kew A chronometer is a boy's wristwatch with the Kew designation deriving from "Kew A Certificate" embossed around the subsidiary seconds.
A lefthanded Rolex Sea Dweller was launched in 1987 and featured a sapphire glass cover that allowed the watch to sustain depths of 4,000 feet, according to ukwatches.com.
